Blue Water Empire is a dramatised documentary series giving new insight into the history and culture of the Torres Strait Islands. The series starts pre-colonisation and charts the impact of European arrival from the missionaries to the influx of people from all around the world during the pearling boom. A thrilling and vital, yet largely unknown, part of our Australian history. The great cast includes Jack Thompson, Ryan Corr, Damian Walshe- Howling and Aaron Fa'aoso.
An introduction to the Torres Straits and a fascinating exploration of the concepts that shaped Torres Strait Islander culture and custom before white settlement.
The pearling boom brings thousands of strangers to the region and has a profound economic and cultural impact on the Torres Strait. Missionaries introduce Christianity which affect traditional language, dance and tradition.
After the collapse of pearling, many Torres Strait Islanders are forced to migrate to the mainland for work. Legendary leaders like Eddie Koiki Mabo and George Mye take huge strides returning autonomy to the people. (Final)
